WARNING: POSSIBLE LINK BETWEEN CHROMATE PIGMENTS AND LUNG CANCER
Several independent technical studies have suggested that excessive inhalation of zinc chromate dust may cause lung cancer. On the basis of these findings, the manufacturers have requested that the sale of zinc chromate primer and zinc chromate primer aerosol be restricted to commercial or professional shop use. Professional users should be certain that workers are not exposed to concentrations in excess of the O.S.H.A. threshold limit value (TLV) of 0.1 milligram (as chromium) per cubic meter. If conditions are such that this limit may be exceeded, additional protective equipment is required. A respirator that has a NIOSH/MESA approval TC-23C. See catalog for respirators that meet this requirement.
Nice finition and long lasting
PLASTI-KOTE GOLD ENG ENAMEL
TEMPO LYCOMING GRAY ENGINE ENAMEL
Fair price and delivered quickly.
havent used it yet , waiting for the annual maintenance period . It always nice to have a fresh can available ..
Lycoming engine was recently rebuilt and this product color matched perfectly.
I recommend the product for color match.
gold color is petty good match for the TCM gold, however it may take 3 coats for a solid covering. Has a tendency to run.
Biggest complaint is how thin it is. Doesnt cover very well. Combine that with the circular spray pattern and the results could be better.

Per manufacturer: When used over bare metal you will need to prep and prime the surface before using this engine enamel.
Primer is not commonly used for engine cases, but a 2-part epoxy primer would work very well.
Per the TDS, "bare metal should be primed." They do not mention a specific primer.
You would need to sand and prime the fiberglass with a self etch primer first (09-02099 for example) but this should work fine.
